Very nice art museum with local and regional artists as well as globally known artists such as Picasso and Matisse. Worth the walk through. Also hosts Nic Fest during June. A weekend of food, music and great art.

On the free admission day, it is barely worth the price. Very sparse place. Nothing really there. Nowhere resembling a real museum

The museum was a real gem. We had reciprocity with our membership at another museum back home; so we planned to see this on our way through WY. It's a small museum, but its permanent collection is great. There was even a sculpture garden.

The all American art collection in this museum is small but interresting. There are temporary exhibitions, like local photography. The intentions are to make things bigger in the future

The Nic has many interactive activities for young and old. The museum is housed in an older building downtown and the inside has been renovated and is very nice.

I have gone there occasionally over the last year and the exhibits are always changing. I am not a big art critic , but it is fun to go and look around. I go more as someone who can't draw a stickman, so I just...More
